Two things that were extremely important to the basic societal functions of colonial American society were women and the church. Much different from today’s world, woman’s main purpose in this society was to give birth to children and provide dowries to their husbands at marriage. The church was obviously there to provide a moral compass and rule to the people of this age. How do women and the church relate however? The relationship between these figures however is important to understanding how colonial Latin America worked especially when we discuss marriage and social standing.
But thanks to the women’s suffrage movement courage and tenacity women gained their right and went on to fight for equal representation in other fields such as in the courtroom, marriage, and job market. A world without women’s rights would look like Margaret Atwood famous dystopian novel “The Handmaid’s Tale.” In the story, the government suspends the US Constitution and revokes all women’s rights, and establish a new regime largely based on the hierarchical model of the Old Testament inspired social and religious fanaticism. In this society women’s rights are strictly curtailed, the women are physically segregated by the color of clothing — blue, red, green, striped and white - to signify social class and assigned position ranked highest to
In the chronicle of Perpetua, she demonstrates valor, as she is bold enough to take a risk and declare her belief in Christ and the Kingdom of God notwithstanding the pressure she felt to please others. Despite her father 's wishes, as he was a Pagan, Perpetua would not recant her remarks and beliefs to satisfy him. In fact, Rousselle suggests that her actions are an appeal to escape from traditional familial patterns of patriarchal authority (1987, p.2). She was brave enough to reveal her true beliefs in a society where such actions were not welcomed. Furthermore, it is said that Perpetua entered the arena and approached her neared death valiantly, having already accepted martyrdom (Rouselle, 1987, p.270).
Until the Civil war, she never stopped working for the American Anti-Slavery Society. But then she was more focused on pursuing women's rights. She started claiming the rights of both sexes and she established with her friend Stanton the American Equal Rights Association. In 1863 both Susan Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton established the Women's Loyal National League to demand some constitution amendments in the United States.

Then she even quickly considered departure, probably death, from what could be saw God 's will brings home her trouble at the opportunity to the reader, however her overcoming such a trial is the thing that takes into consideration her proceeded status. This is contrary to "Joslin" another caught lady whom Rowlandson encounters, Joslin however succumbs to her pain and begged the, “ Indians to let her go home…and yet vexed with her importunity…they knocked her on the head, and the child in her arms” (Rowlandson 284). The comparative favors Rowlandson, as she defeated the trial and martyred herself to suffering God 's will rather than battling His will and enduring a more awful destiny as an outcome.
Traditional women started to oppose the ERA. Schlafly said the ERA was designed for the benefit of young career women and warned that if men and women had to be treated identically it would threaten the security of middle-aged housewives with no job skills. The opposition included states ' rights advocates, some religious groups, and business and insurance interests. Among the arguments against the ERA were that it would prevent husbands from supporting their wives, it would invade privacy, and it would lead to rampant abortion, homosexual marriage, women in combat, and unisex bathrooms. If the ERA becomes part of the Constitution, any law discriminating on the basis of sex will have to meet the strict scrutiny test.
Without the physical act of retaliation, there would be nothing to discuss. When discussing feminism, the theme that both The Awakening and A Doll’s House bring up, it can be argued that the women’s acts of rebellion were more harmful to their families than helpful. One factor unmentioned in the discussion of Edna and Nora’s rebellions are the families that both women left behind. Both Nora and Edna ultimately abandoned their children in an attempt to find a greater sense of self. Thus, Nora and Edna betray their obligation and duties as mothers.
The 19th amendment guaranteed, and still does to this day that all women have the right to vote. Beginning in the mid 19th century several generations of women suffered from inequality. In order for the amendment to become ratified, it took decades of

The feminist movement has blossomed over the past three hundred years and has aided women with gaining the equal right to vote, have an education and be their own reverenced person. Although we have a long way to go, women and many more people owe these rights to Abigail Adams. She was the wife to the second president of the United States, John Adams. Abigail believed in many different ideas that are kindred to the values we have today. Our society today has been striving to give women and people of color more liberation when it comes to ownership of their bodies, opinions and rights to live.
